need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's my job to look after it. ♪ >>> outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton and president barack obama sat down to dawk with "60 minutes tonight." he had plenty of nice things to say, but it wasn't so long ago they were like this. >> while i was working on the streets you were certificating on the board of walmart. >> you were representing resco in innercity chicago. >> my how things have changed. tonight on cbs they address the tragedy in benghazi, libya this past november. >> i knew chris stevens, i sent him there originally. it was a great personal loss to lose him and three other brave americans. i also have looked back and try to figure out what we can do so that nobody in so far as possible will be in this position again. we also live in a dangerous world. the people i'm proud to serve and work with in our diplomatic and development personnel ranks, they know it's a
about a great deal about the deteriorating threat environment in libya. you know, when i landed in tripoli, i was met by the zintan militia. that was the welcome i had. all these guys, dressed completely in black, holding their automatic weapons. that was my welcoming party. >> rubio told fox news last night, time will tell whether some of the things she said will bear out to be true or not. these things have a way of flushing themselves out. overall, clinton's political strengths were clearly on display. she was prepared, tough when she needed to be, deferential when she wanted to be, and she displayed both raw emotion and a sense of humor. it's also worth noting that she's stronger today, politically, than she was four years ago. consider, she's leaving office with the highest approval ratings of her political career, 67%, according to a "washington post"/abc poll. we had her at 69 in the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. a whopping 91% of democrats approve of the job he's done, and that fervor was on vivid display, as senate and house democrats fell all over themselves enc

and environment. this is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. we're literally scorching the lungs of the earth. but colombia is bigger than texas and california combined. the same is true of bolivia, the same is true of peru. these are very large land masses, and trying to eradicate coca is like trying to have a war on canned lions in the united states. you know, good luck, it's not possible. nonetheless,ing our drug warriors did this in colombia. so after 12 years of merciless onslaught of eradication, 12 years ago 90% of cocaine in the united states originated from colombia. after a dozen years of intense drug war in colombia, today about 95% of u.s. cocaine originates from colombia. whereas less than 1% originates from bolivia. and the bolivians actually have done much better in terms of eradication of excess coca and interdiction of cocaine, some of its transiting through peru to brazil and argentina, other countries. but also their own illicit cocaine, they've captured and ask seized more of that than previous governments that were very subserve crept to u.s. governments. so
in the affordable care at. .. unfortunately that is the environment that we are living in. it was a very interesting panel especially the last one. there is nothing better than congressional staffers actually hear from people who practice medicine. you know, patients are going through their treatments. one of the things that the reality that we suffer with, unfortunately, and this is something we all have to deal with, it is just a physical reality. as he rightly pointed out, it is right now the debate about budget and people are trying to figure how to control costs and figure out savings that are scored by studios. the cbo gets a lot of bad rap from people. but i am a fan. they have a very tough job to do. they always come out and it's a very tough job that they have to do and it's hard to please everyone in a town like washington dc and they try to be the best that can. i afford a lot of respect to them. at the end of the day, that is the reality that we have to operate under. so we get a lot of ideas from utah, we have the great health care system, which is a lot of integrated health care delive
certainly aware of the increasing threat environment. i not only was briefed on that, i testified to that effect. and there were constant evaluations going on. but no one, not the ambassador, security professionals, the intelligence community ever recommended closing that mission. and the reason they didn't was because the ongoing threat environment had up until the spring before our terrible attack in benghazi been a result of post-conflict conditions. that is something that we're familiar with all over the world. yes, there were some attacks, as you have said, but our evaluation of them and the recommendation by the security professionals was that those were all manageable because we had a lot of that around the world. i mean, there is a long list of attacks that have been foiled, assassination plots that have been prevented. so this is not some -- you know, one off event. this is considered in an atmosphere of a lot of threats and dangers. and at the end of the day, you know, there was a decision made that this would be evaluated but it would not be closed and, unfortunately, w

business. but today, that field has changed in our competitors are vying to more supportive environment for innovators, conventions and started companies. there's been a change in the field of opportunity back home for those foreign nationals who in increasing numbers are educated in the united states and whom we've been forced to return to the nation of origin. even though many of the most talented young people around the globe still point to the united states to obtain their masters or doctoral degrees in spam, now more than ever they are not just tempted to take their education home with them and start businesses elsewhere. they attracted a home countries and force my outdated immigration system. what an unwise way to compete in the global economy. our outdated immigration system has been adapted for modern world. half of all masters and doctoral degrees at american universities are earned by foreign-born students who then face an uncertain, expensive and i will be passed to pursuing their dreams in the united states. our country is hemorrhaging innovation in the inventors to make th
, for the environment and kwaul of life frankly. this is the central transit system for the region. if you are going to see who is going to carry the ball, i'm skeptical unless people step up in ways they haven't before. the politicians in virginia and maryland right now, they can't even decide on how to find enough money to keep their own road systems from going bankrupt. if they can't figure that out and struggling with that right now how are they going to come up with lots more money for transit? if you look at the business community, some people in the business community like the greater washington board of trade, they are all in for metro. they are the leading supporters for metro. the business community is fragmented and there are lots of parts of the business community that have sort of view. out the dulles corridor in northern virginia and the medical companies and technology companies up 270 in montgomery county and north of there. they are not necessarily as tied in or focused on what's best for the region. and the metro general manager says you've got to have the business community all in
part of my state are still not living in a security environment. we owe them that. at the same time, i think more and more americans are agreeing these 11 million people need to come out of the shadows and we need to give them a path to citizenship but not favoritism. >> senator mccain, you're exactly right. the polls are showing the majority of americans do support the type of proposal you and chuck schumer are putting forward. what would you say to conservative house republicans that will call anything you try to pat in t-- pass in the senat amnesty. >> i think we will and already are reaching across to our friendson the otherside talking and i think they realize the realities of the 21st century and there will be some difficulties and it's long hard path. i'm confident we will succeed. >> senator shuman, willie geist in new york, good to see you this morning. there's a piece in the "new york times" where a reporter goes to a diner in south carolina. the concern down there is people are being rewarded for illegal behavior, a, and b, being given priority over workers in america who ca
on principles but also have civility and i think we can do a little bit to improve the environment. host: sasha on twitter is advocating for more specifics when you talk about earmarks for your district. is it hard as an incoming freshman to take the lumps of what it means to cut spending for your constituents? guest: cutting my own budget by 10% is a significant reduction, and beyond that we have reached a point as a nation where there will be no sacred cows. the pledge we made as a house republican team is that our budget will balance in 10 years and now paul ryan budget of just last year had a lot of praise, and rightfully so because it was the only show in town, but it balance in about 20 years. that is a remarkable difference. you will see means testing of social security and medicare, probably benefit reductions that would apply to folks closer to 60 in age and a specific plan of proposals that we will roll out in the budget committee over the next couple of months. listen, we are not quick -- kidding. we have to stop spending meet -- money we do not have as a nation. host: commerce and l
's important to them to be able to create a safe environment for this gentlemen to be able to tell his story. they know heights a complicated story and they know it will take time. they want to earn his trust and let him know that they are his voice to the outside world. martha: very interesting. and we know that he's in a bunker. he has been sort of fortifying and planning this place for quite some time. the neighbors were aware that he was building this underground there, you know, but you need to obviously appeal to his sense of this child, and that this child has nothing to do with whatever it is that is bothering him, right? >> well, yeah, i mean he feels -- for whatever reason he feels attacked, he feels very defensive about what is going on around him. everything that he's done is clearly to protect himself. the child is not a threat to him, and for whatever reason it was that he took this child it's part of his mechanism to try and protect himself. so he shouldn't see this child as a threat, and he's probably -- the negotiators can actually help him understand how to control the situ
's a very hostile environment. so the republican party is concerned, i think talk radio is concerned. i think independent and conservative outlets are concerned. they're saying, well, how far will this white house go to wipe the debate in a way that is not productive? >> brian: do you believe, in your estimation, that the white house might have more aggressive view than even democrats in the senate and the house? >> i don't know who captured whom. i don't know who the democratic party's back the kidnap victim of. i don't know if the white house has become so progressive that it's taken over the democratic party or the democratic party has taken over the white house. i do know when john boehner says we're looking at annihilation and destruction, but we have something that's really interesting. people have to think about it today. the white house has now set up another arm, a so-called not for profit arm. so now we have branches of government raising hundreds of millions of dollars to perpetuate their viewpoint. should the supreme court do it next? should the house of representatives do i
